Slide Show: Inside Fifty Licks' Scoop Shop
A former SE Clinton soap shop has been transformed into food cart favorite Fifty Licks' brick-and-mortar ice cream scoop shop. The bright and airy 650-square-foot space from French custard-style ice cream guru Chad Draizin softly opened on Friday, August 23. Draizin debuted his retro-styled ice cream food truck in 2010, quickly garnering attention for flavors like Caramelized Apple ice cream and Passionfruit with Sichuan Peppercorn sorbet. At his new scoop shop, designed by Portland-based Elk Collective, he's able to deliver customer favorites along with new innovations. From Cuban coffee and perfected house-made cones to four date night-ready creative sorbet cocktails and ice cream sandwiches, there's something for everyone.
